Unmistakable Muff with more flexibility

Nadz, 13.03.2015
I chose this pedal as I love that classic Muff sound, but there are extras on this pedal for those who want a couple of different options in one pedal. Purists might not like the added features, but personally I see nothing wrong with having more options to choose from.

The "extra additions" on this pedal are the two micro-toggles, labelled "Tone" and "Wicker" respectively.

The "Tone" switch allows you to have the full, original Muff tone circuit in the On position, or bypass the tone circuit in the Off position. This switch radically changes the sound of the pedal, and you can use it to really shape the kind of fuzz you can get out of it. In my experience, switching the tone toggle to the Off position gives me a gnarlier, crunchier Fuzz. In the On position, you get that smoother, more original Big Muff sound.
*WARNING* One thing I wasn't completely prepared for when experimenting with the Tone switch the first time I plugged this pedal in, you may want to turn your amp volume down. I had the pedal's volume quite high when playing with the tone switch in the On position, but when I flicked it to the Off position, it seemed as thought I had let the beast off the leash. It absolutely ROARED at me, it was so raucous and untamed that had it been a wild animal, it would have torn my face off. So naturally I loved it! :)

The "Wicker" switch is quite a nice addition, it seems to keep some of the higher frequencies when you turn down the sustain knob, whereas if you turned the Wicker switch off and rolled back the sustain, you would lose some highs and get a muddier sound, as you would with the original Muff. It's a nice little switch that just adds a little more flexibility when shaping your ideal tone.

In conclusion, I would say that even if you were an original Big Muff purist, this pedal is worth looking into, especially if pedal board space is an issue and you do want more tone options in your signal chain. After all, you're pretty much getting the original Muff sound but with a few extras for those times when you just want to experiment... or maybe you will find something in the extra features that you actually prefer over the original. It's worth a go!

Amazing pedal for great price!

12.01.2016
While watching big muff comparison videos on youtube I wasn't really fascinated about the wicker switch, but I bought this big muff due to it's more universal than standard ones.

When I got it I was really surprised that wicker switch makes sound so much better, especially on those super clean amps (like clean channel on JCM2000). Wicker switch gives slight treble boost, but when big muff sounds really bossy on clean channel it sounds just perfect with wicker activated. Tone switch deactivates/activates the tone knob and when it's deactivated it gives big muff a brand new sound. And I like that sound really much - I almost always play now with tone switch deactivated and wicker switch in position on.

If you want to have original big muff sound, just simply turn tone switch on and wicker off.

If you don't have big muff yet and you are looking which one to get - without a doubt get this one and you won't regret. For almost the same price you get 2 pedals in one, and all modes sound amazingly good.

Speaking about it's quality there's nothing much to talk about - it is heavy-duty made, will last you for ages.

True bypass works great, does not change your original guitar tone at all.

I highly recommend this pedal - it's definitely one of those "Must have" pedals for an absolutely amazing price!
